    i would imagine that the 36mm would be around 43mm lug to lug?
    The 36mm Railmaster measures 43.8mm lug to lug, according to my calipers. By comparison, the 38.5mm Aqua Terra is 45.3mm lug to lug.

    Same thing happened to me 2 weeks ago!...and now I just purchased the 36 after finding the 39 too big....I guess I'm one of those "learn the hard way" kind of guys. This thread by Workahol couldn't have been any better and informative, but the 36mm versions aren't as easy to find as the 39's and so that's where I started...39.

    Told you so! :) For us guys of modest wrist size, the 39mm Railmaster is borderline huge. But I predict you will be really happy with the little one.

    I certainly hope you're right! And we gotta come up with a better name than the "little one", but how about "standard size", then there's L, XL and XXL

    Re: A tale of two Railmasters

    Update...while I'm waiting for the arrival of the 36mm version, I put the 39 back on the bracelet and you know what?....it doesn't look so big now. The strap emphasizes the case/watch head itself, while the bracelet serves as an extension of the watch and as its more integrated, it doesn't emphasize the lager dial etc.

    now, I'm nervous that the 36 will look too small if I ever put it on a bracelet.

    so I guess the guidance I can offer is that if you plan to wear a RM on the bracelet, go bigger and if on a strap, go smaller....?

    I would have thought the opposite..either way, I think you will need to keep both as sometimes you'll want the bracelet and sometimes the strap.

    But if the 36 turns out to be too small for your liking, the line forms here for dibs on the mid-size (definitely should not be called "the little one").

    Well, it might be a bit premature, but I've listed my 39 for sale in the classifieds.
